MUNICIPALITY OF PUERTO DEL ROSARIO

The municipal library of Puerto del Rosario has seven new computers which are available to the library's users and have free access to the internet. This improvement was promoted by the Culture Council in order to ensure that users of this cultural space have access to all possible facilities.

 

The Ayuntamiento starts asphalting various dirt tracks in the villages of Tetir, Los Estancos and La Ampuyenta

The Municipal Government Team gave the go-ahead, in April, to the asphalting of various tracks in the villages of Tetir, Los Estancos and La Ampuyenta, as a response to existing demands from the local residents. Some renovations will be carried out on the tracks to prevent their deterioration and the appearance of potholes and cracks. Those improvements mean better road safety and better access for the residents of those rural areas of the municipality.

 

Social Services make improvements to the home tele-assistance service

Puerto del Rosario's Ayuntamiento is improving the home tele-assistance service by contracting a new company to look after this service. The service of home tele-assistance is aimed at people who find themselves in a situation of risk because of their age (over 65 years old), disability or chronic disease so that they can continue living in their home and remain independent. Thanks to those new improvements, a service of immediate attention is available 24 hours a day and 365 days per year. It aims at covering the necessities of users concerning medical, domestic or psycho-social emergencies in their home, helping them remain in their own home and their usual environment. Amongst the series of improvements added to this service, one of the most important ones is the hiring of a social worker who evaluates the social risk of people and then establishes the protocol of attention and follow-up. Another novelty is that the service can now attend people suffering from auditive, locution and cognitive problems, after an evaluation from the social worker, and as long as the users know how to use the systems adapted to their necessities.
